    Iomega is having another go at getting its removable disk technology incorporated into devices other than PCs.

    This time it's touting a micro-drive system based on a 1.5GB disk encased in a stainless steel cartridge that's a couple of inches in diameter and weighs 9g.

    Iomega calls the unit a Digital Capture Technology (DCT), and it's pushing the product at consumer electronics vendors as an alternative to Flash-based solid-state storage technologies. DCT drives, it says, will offer higher capacities, be more resilient, offer faster data access times and consume less power than today's portable storage solutions. They're also too expensive - Iomega says the DCT will be a "low-cost" solution.
